Working of Patent Status in India should be submitted to know current working status of patented inventions.Importance of Understanding Working of Patent Status in India
We are living in Industry 4 Era. We as Patent Professionals should understand the importance of FORM 27. In my personal view Form27 is very important legal weapon to control the Intellectual property market scenario. Working of patent status is the intent of Form 27. If some technology is granted patent in India and the patentee is not enforcing the same in India we have a remedy. Working of Patent Status in India should be taken very seriously by every entity who wish to reap the benefits of patenting their innovation in India.
Patent Form 27 is very important legal weapon to control the Intellectual property market scenario and Monopoly
The remedy is very simple any interested party can strike a licensing deal with the patentee. We need to work in holistic approach rather eliminating important patent sections in Indian law. The need of the hour is better enforcement of the Form 27 disclosure. Providing working of Patent Status in India is a good move under the Indian Patent law and the Indian patent attorneys should embrace this fact.

O descendent of the Kurus, spiritual intelligence is one pointed and exclusive. However, the intelligence of those that desire mundane enjoyment is many branched. There are two kinds of mind, one scattered and the other one gathered.
In the yoga teaching we speak of the gathered state, which means we have to gather all energy and channelize in the right direction.

Brilliant Idea in Fourth Industrial Revolution is Technology Driven
“One thing about life that’s predictable, is that it is unpredictable”
A brilliant idea for an invention or business could spring into your head at any point in time. But in order to find success, your research and development has to meet modern standards. Ideas are not genuinely original.
Integrating patents into your business plan, is one of the most overlooked elements of a successful business. It takes a lot of energy to run a business, If you have an idea for a product, service or business, beat the odds and use your passion and energy, to figure out how to make it profitable.
There are a number of myths associated with patenting a product or concept that may hold an individual from getting the most out of the concept. In order to see your way clear to filing a patent it is very important to break those myths.
Patent filing narrows down the counterparts and it makes it difficult to impress the investors.
A strong patent portfolio help in fuelling investments for emerging tech companies. Investors often look to see whether a budding company has protected its intellectual property when determining whether to invest or not. It is more likely that you will be taken seriously if you come to the table with excellent technical knowledge and a patent-pending for your idea that’s been well-researched and profits projected, even if you don’t have all the connections with the big players.
It is difficult to avoid infringement so It’s better not to file a patent.
Many things can perform the same function. If you are filing a patent for a software for buying and selling properties, it is possible that you are infringing on a patent someone else took for a software that facilitates property transactions. That’s why the claims section of the patent is so important. Claims have to be worded very carefully. Consult a patent lawyer so that you actually end up having more protection from infringement than you would have without a patent.
My idea is not that great and there is no competition out there for my business plan so why to spend money to patent my technology.
Never underestimate yourself. There is always competition out there. A competitor could steal the idea and put it to use themselves. Instead of letting other party go away with your great concept and make a fortune, you should protect your concept by filing a patent.
If the invention is “obvious to one skilled in the art,” the patent won’t be valid.
Patent law prohibits granting patents for inventions that are obvious to “one skilled in the art.” Many new inventions are combinations of existing inventions. The specific wording of the claims in your patent is the key to patenting an idea that is already out there or “obvious.”
If I need to change my business focus, then the money I invested in filing a patent will be wasted.
Licensing the right to make, use, or sell your product is usually the most profitable route for inventors. Even if you may not make money from a patent you can pursue licensing royalties. As patent holder, you retain ownership of the invention and earn royalty payments on future sales of the product.
Everyone who was a part of the meeting where the idea was conceptualized gets to put their name on the patent.
The inventor is the individual who has the concept of the invention, provided of course that there has been a reduction to practice. The company is the assignee-the person or legal entity that has actual ownership of the patent. The royalties from patent generally go to the company, not the employees who came up with the invention.
